JDC’s investment in education for women in the ancient Jewish community on the island of Djerba is a crucible for the Jewish community development opportunities that arise among the world's most far-flung Jewish communities.
One of Moscow's largest Jewish community centers, the Nikitskaya, was renamed in honor of Ralph Goldman, one of the Jewish world's most accomplished leaders who died, at 100, in Jerusalem earlier this month.
JDC CEO Alan H. Gill says that JDC is continuing its historic legacy of engaging with the public today through new and exciting JDC platforms that highlight the organization's role meeting Jewish and humanitarian needs.
JDC’s most recent Hadracha madrichim training – part of its global network of leadership development opportunities – was held October 10-13 in the Czech Republic and drew a record number of local young Jewish leaders.
When high schooler Danielle Falk picked up a copy of "We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families," a book about the Rwandan genocide, it changed her life forever. Now 25, the native New Yorker is preparing to spend a whole year in Rwanda at the Agahozo-Shalom Youth Village as part of JDC's Global Jewish Service Corps (JSC).
For the past nine months, more than 20 young adults from St. Petersburg used JDC’s Lehava young leadership program to develop leadership skills and learn important project management strategies to help implement important change in the Jewish community. On the night of June 20, they presented their community initiatives, the culmination of weekly meetings, seminars, and a study trip to the United States.
Celebrated throughout Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union on June 1, the International Day of Children’s Protection is a time-honored tradition. Several JDC-supported institutions will mark the holiday with camps and programs.
JDC senior professional Simon Caplan captures the highlights and explains the long-range strategy behind “Destination Shanghai,” the four-day international Jewish learning and networking experience that generated much excitement this week in China’s main commercial metropolis.
